Your secret style weapon for spring? Anything military-inspired. Utilitarian touches (think cargo pockets and olive green) were spotted on runways from Marc Jacobs to Salvatore Ferragamo. Read on to find out what’s so different about this take on the time-tested trend.
Unlike the rigid, uniform-like looks of years past, both structured and relaxed silhouettes are fair game this season. Start with a sharper shape on bottom, like a pencil skirt or tailored trousers. Then, layer on a looser-fitting jacket or button-front top to balance it out. The finishing touch? Minimalist accessories with sleek lines and gold-toned details that tie the outfit together.
Stock up on this trend and more spring must-haves in our Rue’s Spring Checklist Boutique, which opens Thursday, March 19, at 11AM ET.
